About Author Nancy L. Reed

My first writing attempt, at the age of four, was a soup-and-sandwich cafe menu. A love of words grew from that time. I wrote poetry during my elementary and high school years resulting in two chapbooks. Numerous short stories and the beginnings of two novels blossomed from the heady days of writing fiction during college. After college I took a variety of writing classes and workshops to further fuel my passion.

My lifelong relationship with words has brought me here — a book of short stories, a collection of memory snippets, and a gift book of poems and songs about dogs. A second book of memory snippets, a second dog-grr-el book, and a children's book in poetic form will be published in 2016, with a novel following soon after.

The power of words to describe the world we live in and those worlds we’ve never seen, to celebrate people we know and those we’ve never met, and to share our thoughts and feelings as well as focus our futures is a gift we give ourselves and others. Enjoy your words.

My first writing attempt, at the age of four, was an annotated soup-and-sandwich menu for my imaginary cafe. A love of words grew from that time. My exploration of poetry resulted in two chapbooks followed by numerous short stories, memory snippets, and the beginnings of two novels. After college, I took classes and workshops to improve my writing skills and attended writing conferences to network and learn from successful authors.

My lifelong relationship with words has resulted in the publication of a collection of short stories, a compilation of memory snippets, two books of poems and songs about dogs, an illustrated book of curious questions in poetic form, and a book of conversations between two great friends. My contributions to anthologies include poetry and short stories. A second book of memory snippets will be released in 2017. Projects in the works include two novels, a readers theater script, and several children’s books.
